Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:1 - I ask, then, has God rejected his people? By no means! For I myself am an Israelite, a descendant of Abraham,[fn] a member of the tribe of Benjamin.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:2 - God has not rejected his people whom he foreknew. Do you not know what the Scripture says of Elijah, how he appeals to God against Israel?

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:3 - “Lord, they have killed your prophets, they have demolished your altars, and I alone am left, and they seek my life.”

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:4 - But what is God’s reply to him? “I have kept for myself seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to Baal.”

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:5 - So too at the present time there is a remnant, chosen by grace.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:6 - But if it is by grace, it is no longer on the basis of works; otherwise grace would no longer be grace.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:7 - What then? Israel failed to obtain what it was seeking. The elect obtained it, but the rest were hardened,

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:8 - as it is written,
“God gave them a spirit of stupor,
eyes that would not see
and ears that would not hear,
down to this very day.”

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:9 - And David says,
“Let their table become a snare and a trap,
a stumbling block and a retribution for them;

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:10 - let their eyes be darkened so that they cannot see,
and bend their backs forever.”

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:11 - So I ask, did they stumble in order that they might fall? By no means! Rather through their trespass salvation has come to the Gentiles, so as to make Israel jealous.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:12 - Now if their trespass means riches for the world, and if their failure means riches for the Gentiles, how much more will their full inclusion[fn] mean!

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:13 - Now I am speaking to you Gentiles. Inasmuch then as I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my ministry

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:14 - in order somehow to make my fellow Jews jealous, and thus save some of them.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:15 - For if their rejection means the reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance mean but life from the dead?

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:16 - If the dough offered as firstfruits is holy, so is the whole lump, and if the root is holy, so are the branches.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:17 - But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, although a wild olive shoot, were grafted in among the others and now share in the nourishing root[fn] of the olive tree,

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:18 - do not be arrogant toward the branches. If you are, remember it is not you who support the root, but the root that supports you.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:19 - Then you will say, “Branches were broken off so that I might be grafted in.”

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:20 - That is true. They were broken off because of their unbelief, but you stand fast through faith. So do not become proud, but fear.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:21 - For if God did not spare the natural branches, neither will he spare you.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:22 - Note then the kindness and the severity of God: severity toward those who have fallen, but God’s kindness to you, provided you continue in his kindness. Otherwise you too will be cut off.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:23 - And even they, if they do not continue in their unbelief, will be grafted in, for God has the power to graft them in again.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:24 - For if you were cut from what is by nature a wild olive tree, and grafted, contrary to nature, into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these, the natural branches, be grafted back into their own olive tree.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:25 - Lest you be wise in your own sight, I do not want you to be unaware of this mystery, brothers:[fn] a partial hardening has come upon Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:26 - And in this way all Israel will be saved, as it is written,
“The Deliverer will come from Zion,
he will banish ungodliness from Jacob”;

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:27 - “and this will be my covenant with them
when I take away their sins.”

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:28 - As regards the gospel, they are enemies for your sake. But as regards election, they are beloved for the sake of their forefathers.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:29 - For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:30 - For just as you were at one time disobedient to God but now have received mercy because of their disobedience,

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:31 - so they too have now been disobedient in order that by the mercy shown to you they also may now[fn] receive mercy.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:32 - For God has consigned all to disobedience, that he may have mercy on all.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:33 - Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:34 - “For who has known the mind of the Lord,
or who has been his counselor?”

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:35 - “Or who has given a gift to him
that he might be repaid?”

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 11:36 - For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.
